It’s Thanksgiving weekend… as well for those of us who are Jewish, we are in the midst of the Jewish New Year. With the Jewish New Year we reflect on the past year, where we have gone wrong and how we would like this year to be different/better; not just in terms of ourselves, but also for our loved ones, our community and the world. For Thanksgiving we reflect on what we are grateful or most thankful for. Both are a time to gather with family, friends, loved ones and of course eat lots of food!
This year I’m grateful, as many of us are, for my family and friends who love and support me. I’m also especially grateful for my health. Earlier this year I blew out my right knee and had to be on crutches for about two months or more. Doctors were never really able to say what happened exactly and I am still recovering, almost 8 months later. This has really highlighted for me the importance of my health and well-being, as well as how lucky I am compared to others!
In terms of my stamping, there’s a couple of things I would like to do differently this year… One of which is to reach out more to friends and family with my cards. The other is try and reach out to share my love of stamping and paper crafting with more and more people.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
And for those of you who celebrate… Shana Tova! (a Sweet and Happy New Year)
